The Leng Pleng Gig Guide comes out on a Thursday or Friday of every week

Gig Guide - Thursday 2nd of December, 2010

Hey,

The gig guide has a slightly new look now - I have split the gigs into sections that are entitled by the day of the week and the date - I hope it is an improvement.

The live music scene is not only expanding in terms of the number of bands but also in area. This week sees gigs in Siem Reap, Kep, and Kampot.

The Kampot gig is the outdoor concert put on by the Cambodian Space Project. The concert will occur at the village of Seyma (just over the river from the main town not far from the Boddhi Villa) and will involve the band plus an array of other singers and performers spanning the afternoon and deep into Saturday night and Sunday morning. If you are needing transport down there then a bus has been arranged which will leave from the riverfront (in front of La Croisette) at 9:00AM on Saturday morning and return by 6:00PM the following day.

In Siem Reap this weekend you can catch not only the half-marathon but also Phil Manning who will be at the FCC Angkor and Los Poporks who will be playing on pub street in front of the Banana Leaf. They should be two totally great gigs and I urge you to catch them if you are a local live music  enthusiast or if up there for Sunday's run.

At Robiep continue their tour of Cambodia in Kep at the Kukuluku Bar and hopefully might make an appearance at the outdoor concert in Kampot - since it is only just down the road ;o).

Other great gigs this weekend include the Bluesberry Jam who will make their return gig at MetaHouse. Also, if you are in Phnom Penh over the weekend then you can catch the Stiff Little Punks at The Cavern as their expanded line-up is being filmed by a German TV crew for a documentary. 

The FCC Phnom Penh and Chow continue their support of the live music scene with a series of 7 gigs for December. Cool!

If it is a great DJ party you are looking for then Rubies Masked Mischief party with Dr. Wah Wah will be totally worth catching on Saturday night.

Here's this weeks' gig guide.

Gig Guide - Thursday the 25th of November, 2010

Hey,

The Leng Pleng web site sends condolences to the friends and relatives of all the victims of the tragedy that transpired earlier this week. We wish you the best strength of mind and truth of heart during this difficult period.

Will not give a full run-down this week albeit to mention that those who have not witnessed the totally great blues/roots finger-picking and slide from Phil Manning should make absolutely sure to catch at least one of his shows at the FCC Phnom Penh this weekend. The best gigs of the week also include Kheltica at Gasolina early on Saturday and the Cambodian Cowboys, Les Bannis and Holiday in Cambodia later that day at Paddy Rice. At Robieb continue their Cambodian tour in Siem Reap this week with three gigs. Bum 'N Draze are also in Siem Reap this weekend playing at the X-Bar on Friday.

Please also note the Chinese House has postponed the gigs announced in last weeks gig-guide. Please stay posted to the blog to have the latest info. The web site has been a little slow to update this week for various reasons, however please be aware that the latest in gig info is available at http://www.LengPleng.com.

Gig Guide - Thursday the 18th of November, 2010

Hey,

The music scene here is just totally amazing. What an huge expansion over the past year - only just over a year ago the only regular weekly band was the legendary Hellhounds. Last night's Setsara proved that with the introduction (to this blog at least) of the great new band called The Choppers. They are totally great combination playing original music and may be playing at the jam session at Paddy Rice tonight - look out for more in the coming weeks.

Even though the list of music is not long this week due to the Water Festival, there are still some totally great gigs to catch. This includes a quick stopover by At Robiep as they tour Cambodia. They will play at Equinox this Friday before heading on to Battambang, Poipet and Siem Reap. The band is an energetic power duo that plays a range of original music and rock covers (Ramones, Lords of the New Church, Iggy Pop) in French, English and Brazilian. It will be a unique performance so don't miss it. Their tour schedule can be seen here.

The Lazy Drunks will also be doing three great rock 'n roll / blues sets this weekend and they have their brand new T-shirts available, so get down to meet the guys and pick one up before they all disappear.

Have a great Water Festival, be careful on the roads and see you around the traps.

Gig Guide - Thursday the 11th of November, 2010

Hey,

Some huuuuuuuge gigs on this weekend as the music scene really starts hotting up for the coming high season. Especially on Saturday where live music lovers will be torn between no less than 6 great gigs !!!!!!
 
The Mekong Pirates play at the FCC - which will be absolutely choc-a-block with party revelers (going on their last performance at that venue). Also, Balgass will be playing one of their last gigs for the time being at the MetaHouse. The totally eclectically produced Phnom Penh Hippie Orchestra will be packing out the Chinese House. The Cambodian Space Project who will be preceded by the Stone Daddies will perform for the WFF Fundraiser at Sharky Bar. Also Memphis will be hosting an international tribute to the Grandaddy of Funk with Superbad. Finally Equinox will feature some totally cool Khmer Rap feautuing several of Cambodia's top rap performers - including Lisha, Tum, Oan and DJ Gang. The gig is presented through KlapYaHandz.

Just a quick word about the WWF Fundraiser. This should be a great event - not only for the live music - but also for the other great things that will happen on the night. This includes some great raffles and prizes. All the sponsorship and money collected go directly to the rescue and care of Cambodia’s endangered wildlife at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center. See more details of the night and prizes here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=105639899506075

The Acoustic Sessions just keep getting better and better so please, all musicians, feel welcome to get down to Setsara next Wednesday night. The Electric Eclectic Limelight Jukebox Jam is also a totally great place and time to get down and play some tunes - that's happening tonight! Yeah!

There is a lot more coming up so please stay tuned - and tell your friends about us if they haven't heard.

Gig Guide - Thursday the 4th of November, 2010

Hey,

The music scene in Cambodia continues to to expand and develop. This week sees over 20 gigs scheduled.

Adding to the mix in a profound way is Balgass - a Gypsy jazz trio from France. If you haven't managed to see this totally fine and professional outfit yet, or if you would like to get as much of them in before some members take-off back to France, then you will have plenty of opportunity with the trio performing 4 gigs over the next four days.

This week also sees the much anticipated emergence of the capitals latest line-up - the Stone Daddies. This new band will perform a tribute to the Rolling Stones classic album Exile on Mainstreet at Sharkys this Friday starting at the earlier time of 8:00PM. Fronted by the husky, rock & roll, resilient vocals of Karen McArthur (Phnom Penh's latest musical asset) and featuring the wonderfully executed slide and rhythm guitar of James Jessup - the line-up will start off slowly and then build to a totally full-bodied rock & roll tribute to one of the best albums ever to be released. This will be followed by a full two sets by Lost Highway. Looking forward to it!

Plenty more coming over the next few weeks with the totally not-to-be-missed return of Australian blues slide and finger-picking guitar legend Phil Manning at the FCC Phnom Penh as well as the Curtis King Band featuring local favorite Davis Zunk on bass. The Chinese House will be having their  2nd Anniversary party in a couple of weeks and there will most likely be a totally huge Khmer rock concert of never-before-seen in Cambodia proportions in mid-December - cool! Stay tuned to Leng Pleng !

Here's this weeks gig guide.
